Gorgeous Dress
This is a gorgeous dress! I received lots of compliments all night. It runs a little small and the zipper was a little tricky. You will definitely need someone to assist with zipping-up. I had to go 1 size up but other than that I love everything about the dress. This is my second rental and I've been impressed both times. I will be renting again for future events.

Gorgeous dress -- ordered as back up
This dress is 100% gorgeous -- romantic and elegant. I ordered as a backup and really wanted to wear instead of the other dress. However, there was a small tear in the lace overlay in the back. I contacted rent the runway immediately and customer service handled the situation. The dress seem to run small. I wear a 2/4 and the 4 was tight between the chest & stomach...but not an uncomfortable tight. I think a 6 would have given me more peace of mind. I would definitely rent again (just a size up). It was a gorgeous color, style, length.

Stunning!
I adored this dress and wished I didn't have to send it back. I think this is my favorite dress I've ever rented from RTR. Both the 4 and the 6 fit very well but I opted for the larger size as this was a work-related formal event and I wanted it to be a bit looser. Very comfortable length. I got so many compliments on it all night long.

This dress was perfect for my son's wedding. I will definitely rent again.
I am probably between a 2 and 4 and tried to order both but only the 2 was available. With a waist minimizer, I was able to wear it comfortably and a 4 would have been too large. Between the dress and the earrings, I had a great outfit for a wonderful day.

Flattering fit-no one else had anything on like it
I wore this for my son's graduation from law school. The cocktail length was perfect for the occasion and going out to dinner after. The subtle beading and sequins added just enough bling. The color is a little richer than navy. I paired w/black pumps, sapphire earrings and chunky silver/crystal bracelets. The beaded illusion neckline made a necklace unnecessary. It fit like it was made for me

Perfect for wedding with SO's family!
Thankfully this dress runs true to size since the 4 was the only size available. it fit perfectly. There is some give so I still had some room. This dress was absolutely beautiful. I didn't understand what everyone was saying about the lining, but they were right. The lining at the bottom is 2 sided. The underside is neutral but when it shows you can see it through the lace, but I am sure I am the only one that noticed. I got a trillion compliments and apparently navy lace is very in for this wedding season so watch out if you really want to stand out. For reference I am 5'8", 145 lbs, 34A.

PERFECT dress for my parent's 50th wedding anniversary party.
I loved, LOVED this dress. The size 6 fit me perfectly, I typically wear a 4-6. I received so many compliments, I didn't want the night to end! I was over the moon with my selection as well as everything with RTR, would definitely recommend.

Not bad for over 60 !
This dress fit PERFECTLY. I am 5'5" and 122 lbs. with only a 33" bust. I had tried it on in the store but didn't want to spend the money. When my back-up dress became unavailable, I chose this one, and RTR came through. KUDOS to their customer service department. I received so many compliments and still do since I recently changed this to my FB profile picture. Wore with "sticky boobs." Only downside was that the lining hung below the lace, but I pinned it up, so problem solved. I've rented 3 times and so far this is my favorite. Another one coming up in May. I love that I can have a different dress for every wedding.

Beautiful! But the nude slip showed below parts of the skirt.
I saw that another reviewer had issues with the slip, but I hoped it was a one-time thing. Unfortunately, it looks like an issue with the dress.

I wore this to the San Francisco ballet and got so many complements. It's well structured and has little details to make it really stand out. Not your average lace dress!

A perfect dress for an elegant office holiday party!
I loved the dress and received many compliments. It runs a bit small, so I wore the backup size 6. Size 4 felt snug around the tummy when I sat down. I am 5' 0", and the dress fell at the calf level, working well as a tea-length dress. RTR also offers this in mustard color (my first choice), but it wasn't available in my size. I like this dress enough to rent the other color next time!

I could not wear this dress!
I could not get the zipper up! Even on the hangar, it stuck rather badly, and dressing solo, I could not manage it. It is a beautiful dress, and if it were my own, perhaps I would have waxed the zipper or some such. What a waste!

The lace and color!
Such a beautiful dress. The length was perfect. Loved the sleeves and lace detail. No stretch at all. I really could've worn an 8 because it was a bit tight in the bust and hips... but it wasn't available. Read the reviews beforehand so I was prepared. Worn with nude heels. Definitely renting from RTR again! I love this website because it is really convenient for someone like me who does not like wearing the same thing twice to big events. My only regret is that I wish I could have bought this dress and kept it! lol

This dress was amazing. I got so many compliments on it and they couldn't believe I had rented it!
The fit was great. I was a little nervous because I have a booty from crossfit and I have more muscular arms as well. I did wear spanx with the dress just so everything stayed smooth and went on effortlessly. The color was great and it's the first time I have ever actually worn navy to an event. It was so on trend right now, yet I looked completely different then the rest of the wedding guests. I was really happy and definitely will be renting again!

This dress fit perfectly. It hugged my curves without being tight or constricting. But it was also elegant and classy for a high-end benefit in New York. I felt great wearing it.

This dress is very unique and allows you to have an elegant with a hint of feisty look. Loved it
Pros - very elegant loved the color and it's pretty true to size I wear a 4/6 and opted for the 4 because it was a better fit. The lace wasn't scratchy at all The intricate beading work is an added plus Cons - I don't like the nude Piece that hangs at the bottom The top clasp kept coming apart at the top

Pretty dress- a little too grown up for me...
Beautiful dress, but it felt a little "old" for the vent I was attending. I opted for a more fun, flirty Nha Kahn style.

This dress fit like a glove and was so extremely flattering. Its both classy and sexy and I got so many compliments throughout the evening (both at the formal event at even at the casual bars we went to afterwards!). It made a real splash. Wish I could buy this one.

Beautiful Dress!
Loved this dress so much ! I wore it for my cousins wedding and it was classy and got a lot of compliments. I wore the size 6 and felt it was true to size as I have a larger bottom and it fit perfectly. The only problem I had with it was the under layer kept flipping up so you'd see the beige through the navy dress. Other than that it was classy and fabulous!

I felt elegant in this dress!
Based on reviews I was able to select my proper size. I ordered the size 4 and 6. I ended up wearing the size 6 and it fit me perfectly. The size 4 dress had a problem with the lining which fell below the dress fabric hem which was unacceptable for me as this should not show. The size 6 fit me perfect so no problems there. I received the dress on time in order to get my accessories. I have a 36C/D bust and was able to wear this dress without a bra due to the cut of the dress. It fit like a glove, however there is no stretch to the fabric so be true to your size. Also no slip required as the lining of the dress was wonderful. Only under-garment required was your typical panties. I received non-stop compliments from the moment I put the dress on until I took it off, and even complete strangers stopped me and complimented. It was a hit! This was my first time using RTR and I would do it again in a heartbeat. This dress received reviews that it was a bit matronly? I disagree with this as this dressed screamed elegance, class, perfection, tasteful, and just plain beauty. Yes, I am probably considered older, however due to my body type, I can wear whatever I want. If you want to be both comfortable and beautiful along with being a class-act too, don't hesitate to order this gorgeous dress.

Tons of compliments and pretty comfortable!
Overall this dress was a hit for the wedding I attended. The dress is pretty comfortable. As for fit, I would say if anything it runs a little small. I usually wear an 8 which I could have worn with spanx but decided to go with the 10 and be a little more comfortable. I rented the dress in yellow as well and was torn on which color to wear! The only complaint I have about the dress is the lining of the dress kept rolling up underneath it to show the nude color. You can slightly see it in this photo. It wasn't a huge deal though. I WOULD NOT wear this at a summer wedding. The dress does not breathe as well as some other dresses might!

This dress was BEAUTIFUL but it wasn't right for my event.
This dress was LOVELY. I absolutely loved the fit. I ordered a size up because I have a large bust and it was very comfortable. Unfortuately, I ended up wearing my alternate dress because it was a little less formal than this one. I would definitely rent this one again!
